The Philippines is made up of 7,107 islands with the majority of those islands heavily undeveloped. Many children have to swim or walk long distances to school because there are few available on the islands they live on. Parents worry that their children will have to go to school wet, however they often push their kids to go because of the difficulties of life without proper education. Introducing Yellow Boats. The idea for these yellow boats comes from yellow school buses in the US. Yellow Boat of Hope provides a safer mode of transport for children getting to and from school without having to swim through dangerous water, where they sink into mud and step on corals. One Yellow Boat provides 5 children 2 trips each: transportation to and from school daily. This gift provides one trip for a child to attend school and return in Cebu.
This gift supports communities in the Philippines and costs 640 points on JellyChip.
The target charity is the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation.
